The F Street Connection Project will impact the traveling public on
I-15 between Washington Avenue and U.S. 95. The project is currently in Phase
3. Expected to last until spring 2014, this phase includes moving southbound
freeway traffic over to the northbound side of the freeway so that crews can
construct the southbound portion of the F Street Bridge. A temporary ramp to
accommodate southbound I-15-to-I-515 traffic will also be built. Two lanes on
I-15 will be maintained in each direction throughout the project area. The F
Street Reopening project contains seven phases. Though timelines for the
remaining phases haven't been determined yet, the project is scheduled for
completion in late 2014. Additional phases will encompass the following:
- Phase 4: Building the S/B I-15- to-I-515 structure, D
Street on-ramp over F Street and a storm drain tie-in.
5: Replacing barrier rail between southbound I-15/I-515 lanes.
- Phase 6: Improving pavement, curbs, gutters and sidewalks
on F Street.
- Phase 7: Constructing F Street under I-15
and a portion of F-D Connector Roadway.
The Nevada Department of Transportation made changes
to I-15 traffic patterns starting at 9 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 15:
Northbound and southbound lanes were switched to the northbound side of the
freeway, with two lanes available in each direction.This configuration
will last until spring 2014 and will allow crews to construct the southbound
portion of the F Street Bridge. On Wednesday, Oct. 16, the D
Street/Washington on-ramp to southbound I-15 closed; it will remain closed until
summer 2014. The alternate route to I-15 will be via the Martin Luther King
Boulevard on-ramp. Two lanes on I-15 will be maintained in each direction
throughout the project area.
UPDATE: F Street Closures Begin Jan. 2, 2014
Beginning Jan. 2, 2014, construction work will begin on the section of F Street north of I-15. As a result, there will be surface-street closures in the surrounding neighborhood.
First, storm drain and sewer utilities will be enhanced on McWilliams from F Street to E Street. McWilliams will be closed from F Street to E Street, with the northern portion of McWilliams remaining accessible to homeowners.
Then, in late-January, road and utility work is scheduled to begin on F Street from I-15 to Washington. At that time, all through traffic on F Street will be restricted, including entrances from Washington, Morgan, McWilliams and alleys. Again, access will remain available to homeowners.
Once asphalt removal is complete, ramps will be installed so homeowners can drive through the worksite to enter their driveways. This construction will take place from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.; no work will take place outside of these times unless a notification to the neighborhood is provided at least 48 hours in advance.
Construction equipment and haul trucks will use G Street, H Street and E Street to enter and exit the work area. Please call (702) 385-6509 for more information.
